YOKO Ono is a fighter.
The widow of John Lennon is fighting to keep the Sure Start Center at Dovedale Infant School open.
Yoko — who, with Lennon, attended the school as a child — helped add an addition of the Center, which serves as a community gathering place for adults and children. She was on hand in 2010 when it opened.
According to the Liverpool Echo newspaper, cuts in government spending are threatening the program. Yoko threw her support behind the Center in an interview with the paper.
“I was very very happy to open the centre at Dovedale and to know how much it is loved and well used by the parents and the children. I strongly support the campaign to keep the center open,” she said.
In addition, Yoko Ono sent a warm message to those whom the center services.
“When I visited you, all of you gave me a big smile. I will never forget that day. We are family. I love you, Yoko.”
